BoA, Wells Fargo, Chase and TDBank are among the best ways to insure your loan approval will go wrong. I work hard to make sure my clients are preapproved by trusted and proved lenders from other institutions.

Why would you want to have 2 agents and pay double commissions? I am not even sure it is possible to have two agents (unless they both work for the same broker) on a listing agreement. It sounds very much like you cannot agree on an agent or do not trust each other.
Settle on one agent to list and market the home, then if possible satisfy your father's wife with a small referral IF it is legal in your state (it may not be in some states).
If they home is part of an estate, then the executor of the will should be the one responsible for handling this chore.... more

My honest suggestion is to look at new folks that are just out of real estate school. A few reasons: They are new and hungry, they would be more willing to do anything they can to get business, they would probably work for a lot less than a seasoned vet would and you would inherit no problems. You would be able to train them the way you want them, without someone bringing their old habits with them.
That is just my two cents. Granted, after you train 'em, they could very well look to be on their own, depending on who is romancing them with commission split and lead generation. Once they learn about all of that, it would be a tough sell to keep a fully licensed REALTOR on your team unless you pay well and often.
I am not an expert, but just thought I would lend what was on my mind. Best of luck, and remember, it's always better to have more business than you can handle than to have not enough to feed the family.
On a side-note, I got extremely busy during my first few months, taking on EVERYONE. I found out really quick that can turn south on you because your customer service focus will drop with each new prospect. I like to keep only a few people at a time, I'm not looking to be a gazillionaire, I just want to have fun and be my own boss :)

If you plan on being in business more than another few years you had better develop both a significant online presence as well as a social media presence. This is the way our industry has been going for more than a decade now and agents who fail to embrace the Internet completely; in my opinion are on the way out. the only exception to this is agents how have already developed a massive business over many years and are able to rely exclusively on referrals from their previous clients. Personally with more than 20 years of experience as a full time broker who is consistently in the top 5% of all Realtors wherever I've worked in terms of both number of closed transactions and dollar volume closed I can count the number of agents who can do this on one hand. I'm not one of them and I would not recommend this approach to any new agents or any agent not satisfied with their current business.... more
Depends on the area you live in. In a rural area where populations are smaller and frequently spread out this is probably a fact of life and location to your target market may not as relevant. If you live in a suburban or urban area, then I believe your physical office should be within a 10-20 minute drive time to where you do the bulk of your business. I don't know how you convince clients your an "expert" on an area that you don't live near.... more
I overcame shyness early in life. So, it's not that.
1) Dealing with difficult people. It is an art I have not as yet completely mastered. Getting there, though.
2) Keeping the days from blurring into one another. If we're still working six-day weeks, I haven't notice. Seven doesn't get it all done this time of year.
3) Gathering referrals. Plenty of people recommend me. I hate to go back and ask them to write something for my Zillow page, Word Press page, Linkedin and on and on. Once and done should be the way it is done.... more
I would definetely make sure i did my research on my home and mortgage options. i was in such a rush to buy a home I did not step back and analyze everything. I ended up having to back out of my first deal the day before closing. It was the right choice but I forfeited a lot. I now as a realtor emphasize that buyers work through their deal and not to be pressured as I was.... more
